Not too long ago, Microsoft confirmed they are rebranding the SkyDrive and it will be known as OneDrive. Recently, the Redmond-based company took the wraps off of their new service, and it’s now available for the general public. For those of you who don’t know, it’s still the same as Skydrive and gives users the ability to store their files in the cloud and access them from any device, anywhere.

If you’re wondering about the files that were saved on SkyDrive, fret not as they are moved to the new cloud storage service, all you need to do is login with your SkyDrive account on OneDrive, and Voila! your files are there.

The new service comes with enticing new features as well. On signing up on the new service, users get 7GB extra storage space for free. It doesn’t end here, on referring your friends and other people, you can get an additional 5GB of storage space for every friend that registers on OneDrive. Other features include automatic camera backup for Android and you also get an extra 3GB for it, ability to share and view videos, and much more.

The service has dedicated applications for all major platforms that are currently available in the market, including Windows, Windows Phone, Xbox, iOS and Android, which makes sure you can have seamless access to the service any time.
